When I finish the Ebbles UD41 dropship, I will make the M722 light recon vehicle for it. My initial plans were to make the UD41's medical bay option for the interior, but I realized that the M722 recon vehicle can fit inside it perfectly. According to Ebbles himself, he actually made the M722 for the UD41, so I am going to go all the way and build them both.
However, I realized that I should be able to go half and half and replace some of the M722's personnel seats with a few of the UD41's medical pods!
I will definitely do this, but a neat idea popped into my head a few minutes prior to me making this thread;
Replace the fake windows on the medical pods with overhead projector sheet stuff or inkjet transparencies if I have to, make some cloth padding for the inside of the pods(using scrap white sheets and something to fill the padding with), put some injured soldiers/civilians, and color portions of the sheet red for bleeding detail if the injuries require it.
To do this, I need some prone, injured soldiers/civilian models. I doubt there are any 3d papercraft models, so I am asking if anyone knows where I could get some 1/60 28mm injured plastic peoples. Papercraft will do if they are good enough.

If you gimp (or photoshop) you could recolour this into a 3d medical patient.
Here are the instructions to help you out
Hang Gliding Holmes Instructions
I cut out, edge and glue the pieces together one at a time to avoid losing small pieces. I build with card stock because I have trouble getting photopaper to curl and adhere.
1. Use the red lines as guides to score all the indicated parts before you cut any out. 2. Cut out and edge “the core of your figure.” 3. Starting at the widest end (i.e. the neck,) roll the core lenthwise as tightly as possible. 4. Open up the core, apply some glue and roll again as tightly as possible. Make sure to glue down the ends of the head and the longest bit that gives Sherlock his chest. 5. Put the head seam against your work surface and press down on the chest to give the figure an oval cross section. 6. Cut out and edge one of the legs. (They are the plaid pieces with brown “boots” on the end.) 7. Fold the scored tabs back and curl the leg so that the tabs meet each other and are hidden inside. There will be an uncurled flap at the top. 8. Open up the leg again, apply glue and glue the tabs inside the leg. 9. Bend the bottom part of the leg that has no tab away from the seam to form the foot. 10.Put glue on the flap and attach the leg to the core by wrapping the flap around the bottom (where the plaid is.) Make sure the foot is pointing forward (away from the seam on the back of the head. 11.Repeat steps 6 to 10 with the other leg 12.Cut out the vest and glue it over the chest, facing front. 13.Cut out one of the jacket halves. Fold it along the score line so that the jacket has a lining edge and glue. 14.Curl the bottom of the jacket half and glue it to one side of the core. 15.Repeat steps 13 and 14 with the other jacket half. 16.Cut out and edge one of the arms. Fold the scored tabs back and curl the arm so that the tabs meet each other and are hidden. DO NOT GLUE YET! 17.Cut out and edge one of the hands. Fold it in half and glue the halves together. 18.Glue the hand tab underneath the forearm tab of the arm. The three plaid tabs are at the shoulder end of the arm. 19.Curl the arm again as in step 16 but this time glue the tabs together inside the arm. 20.Curl the hand into a fist and bend the arm at the elbow. When deciding how to bend the elbow, remember you want to hid the seam by having it face backwards. 21.Fold the plaid tabs inside the shoulder, apply glue to the tabs and attach the arm to the figure. 22.Repeat steps 16 to 21 with the other arm. 23. Cut out and edge the rectangle with the face and hair, curl slightly and glue it in place. 24.Cut out and edge one of the hat brims, curl it slightly and glue it to the front of the figure above the eyebrows. 25.Repeat step 24 placing the second brim on the back of the figure's head. 26.Cut out and edge the top of the hat. Glue the front and back onto the figure and then glue down the sides. The front and back have curved ends, the sides are straight on the bottom. 27.Cut out the cloak. You can leave the whole in the middle until after it is folded. Edge. 28.Fold along the score line, glue and cut out the notch for the neck. 29.The fin is optional. (I left it off of my final entry to Papercuts because it ripped while I was burnishing it. If using the fin (it makes aerodynamic sense and really, Sherlock would have one) cut out and edge the fin. Fold the tabs up, then fold the fin in half and glue it together without gluing the tabs together. 30.Put glue on the tabs and attach the fin to the bottom of the cloak. The bottom of the cloak is the side where you can see the struts clearly. The folded edge of the fin should face away from the neck hole. 31.Curl the cloak between the struts slightly so it looks like the struts are holding the cloak down against the wind. 32.Glue cloak to the back of the figure and glue the hands to underside of the cloak. 33.Place figure on a flying base of your choice. I made mine out of clear plastic packaging and used a needle to make a hole in the bottom of the torso to accept the stand. Just enough room left for me to say: “I hope you enjoy your model.”
On the other hand, maybe it's the herd that is crazy.
squirmydad: My heart just sank, thoughts and prayers indeed.

Vermin King: I saw on Facebook that glennwilliams coded on the table while he was having surgery and is now in ICU on a ventilator. Thoughts and prayers would be appreciated

cowboyleland: Thanks to squirmydad for continuing to make the forgotten cool stuff easy to find.

Vermin King: Got to see Jeff Beck at one of those. Pretty cool. Only time I saw Adrian Belew was at a club gig in KC. Now, I am trying to get Mom up and running on Pandora for old country music. It's her first smart phone

Vermin King: I think I have it going now, Barbara Streisand hasn't come up on Willie Nelson in over 48 hours. Back when I was in Cleveland, a disc jockey was formerly with Peter Frampton's band. He set up club gigs for folks

senkosmos: I'm a fan of every artist you mentioned, particularly Jeff Beck (Beck, Boggart & Appice being among my top 3 heavy blues albums, I'ts certainly a pity that Pandora is given you such a hard time to listen to Belew
Jun 12, 2021 8:02:20 GMT -9
Vermin King: I then did another search and started a new Adrian Belew station. It did have 'Artist Only', but the Thumbs Playlist would only go to eight songs. If I added a song, it deleted another. I think I now have it fixed. Didn't have that problem with others
Jun 11, 2021 14:41:41 GMT -9
Vermin King: Back to Pandora. I doubt that there are many Adrian Belew fans here, but on Pandora he is jinxed. I deleted the radio station since it did not offer 'Artist Only' mode, and the Adrian Belew Radio Thumbs Playlist never existed.

Vermin King: Rant over ... almost. I'm sure I will be back on this later

Vermin King: And Tom Petty is on every station, including Willie Nelson. I like Tom Petty's songs, but not to where I have collected his station, and he certainly doesn't fit on the Jeff Beck station.
Jun 7, 2021 16:39:44 GMT -9
Vermin King: And why does the David Bowie station play America and John Denver? Aargh
Jun 7, 2021 16:36:49 GMT -9
Vermin King: I totally do not understand Pandora any more. I changed phones and when I logged into Pandora, my stations were basically wiped clean. Adrian Belew used to have Adrian Belew, King Crimson, Zappa, etc. Now it has only played one true Adrian Belew song

squirmydad: Last year the schools did drive-thru graduations. No overtime, not authorized this year.
May 17, 2021 7:25:26 GMT -9
cowboyleland: Canada is up to 50% (eligible) vaccinated but we are still not reopening schools. My kid probably won't get a grad at all.
May 17, 2021 6:38:27 GMT -9
Vermin King: Oo, doggies! I hope you get overtime
May 17, 2021 4:22:28 GMT -9
squirmydad: I'm setting up staging and sound systems, running the grad, then striking and rolling to the next one. I'm pretty tired and still have one more week of these. An end of year concerts.
May 15, 2021 21:07:38 GMT -9
squirmydad: Returning to normal means that for me I'm working every graduation (x27) that the schools and programs are doing this spring, each graduation being on the schools site, sometimes 2 or 3 in the same day.
May 15, 2021 21:06:05 GMT -9
Vermin King: I guess returning to normal is causing things to be very quiet here lately

mproteau (Paper Realms): rag - the best thing to do is to pull the art out of the PDF and print straight from Silhouette Studio. That way you can ensure you have the registration marks you want, and the cutlines all line up. I have a video showing how to do this easily if needed.
